This Woman Is Giving Her $1.7 Million Home To Whoever Can Write Her The Best Letter

Alla Wagner, from Millarville, Alberta, Canada, opened an essay contest and the winner gets her $1.7 million home. Her house is 3,800-square-foot and due to a serious back injury, it’s impossible for Wagner to navigate the stairs. Then, Wagner decided to put it on sale but unfortunately, nobody showed interest because of its whopping price.

On an interview to CBC Daybreak Atlanta Wagner said: ‘I was told it was too high from market value, so I lowered the price and it still didn’t move at all’.

After that, Wagner came up with a new idea to create a competition on social media. Essay topic? The Write a Letter, Win a House competition has a simple question, how winning this house would change your life. However, here is the fine print. In order to participate in this competition, you should pay a $25 fee to submit the essay. So, Wagner hopes that over 68,000 people will participate in order for her to reach the value of her investment. Only If $1.7m is raised, a winner will be selected, if not all the contestants will be refunded.

You can be part of the competition too, if you write a letter in a maximum of 350 words and you have 3 months to prepare it since the deadline is April 5 with a possibility of extension. Wegner spoke CBC Daybreak Atlanta, saying that she wants to be someone who loves the place and fits in, calling the neighbors incredible people:

It has to just really touch on my heartstrings and not necessarily because of a sad story but because of the motivation. If somebody wants to write a poem, they can write a poem. If somebody wants to write five paragraphs telling me why is it important for them to get this place [they can].I wanted to be creative but I don’t want [anyone] to be scared of writing like, ‘Oh, I’m not a good writer, so I’m not going to be able to to win’.

Wagner also spoke to Global New and you can see the interview here:

She said that this competition is not a lottery, and is more like crowdfunding although a panel of judges will be choosing the winner who has to be +18. Also, none of her family members are allowed to apply. To read more about this competition you can visit the Write a Letter, Win a House Facebook page.
